CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- It's Friday so that means it's time for Student of the Week!

This week we are featuring Katarina Zeigler, a senior at Middleburg High School. She won the state science fair in chemistry this year.

Her project focused on how sugar molecules impact the movement of water.

Katarina said she put a lot of work into it during and after school and she loves chemistry! She has advice for other students that may be struggling in school.

"Never give up, I know it gets hard and I know it does, but in the end you feel so good when you are done. You can look back and go, 'look what I did' and remembering that can always be helpful," says Katarina.

She is going to the University of South Florida for college and wants to be a speech linguist pathologist and teach sign language.

Congrats to Katarina for winning the state science fair and being a role model to other students.

Katarina Zeigler at Middleburg High School is our Student of the Week!
